BUCS RESUME TALKS WITH TAMPA OFFICIALS ON STADIUM ISSUE
Published January 22, 1996
Following their last meeting on January 12, officials from the Bucs and Tampa plan to meet again as early as this week, according to the TAMPA TRIBUNE. The talks come even though the Bucs have publicly broken off talks about the project. The Bucs have insisted that the meetings be kept quiet and threatened to cancel the January 12 meeting if the media showed up at the Tampa Sports Authority. TSA officials initiated the first meeting, but Bucs GM Rich McKay called TSA exec Mandell Shimberg on Wednesday from the NFL meetings in Atlanta to set up a meeting. Shimberg: "I don't want to draw more to that than meets the eye, but I did indicate we will happily try to put something together" (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 1/20).
